Origami Gift Box – Tutorial Video

Origami gift box stack 2 paperkawaii

If you would like to make a bigger or smaller box, just start with 2 sheets of the same size rectangular paper. Use one sheet (made into a square) for the base, and use half of one sheet for the lid, and then use the left over half to make a quarter of the original paper size, for the top insert.

For those who want to complain about the music, please use the mute button!!
Officially the lid would be ‘Modular Origami’ and the alternative lid I created would be ‘Kirigami’.

Paper Sizes:

Lid: A5 / 21.1 x 14.9 cm / 8.3 x 5.8 in
Lid-Insert: A6 / 10.5 x 7.4 cm / 4.1 x 2.9 in
Base: A4 / 29.7 x 21 cm / 11.7 x 8.3 in
Alternative Lid (Kirigami): A5 / 21 x 14.8 cm / 8.3 x 5.8 in

Finished Box Size:

Length: 9.8cm / 3.7 inch
Width: 5.5 cm / 2.1 inch
Depth: 3.2 cm / 1.3 inch

This pretty and stylish origami box is perfect to use as a gift box.
The difficulty is medium, if you haven’t folded before this may be too hard.

    Hi :).. I’m just confused of what paper I should use when printing your paper designs.. do you have any suggestions ?!.. I really loved your websites and woks .. they are so beautiful and you are so creative.. nice ! 🙂

    1. Thanks so much! I use plain white printer paper, if I could find some semi-gloss thinner paper I would get that, but they don’t sell it near me ! 🙂
